Symphony CD Wins Grammy Award  ®

The Kansas City Symphony´s second CD for award-winning audiophile label Reference Recordings, titled Britten´s Orchestra, has won a Grammy award® in the “Surround Sound Album” category, and producer David Frost won “Producer of the Year, Classical” with Britten´s Orchestra being the first CD listed in his credits.
 
The CD was Reference Recordings´ first multi-channel release, a hybrid SACD which will let music lovers and audiophiles hear masters in full 5.1 Surround Sound for the first time.
 
“It is a privilege to have David Frost, Keith Johnson, and the whole Reference Recording team as partners with us at the Kansas City Symphony. I am thrilled at how the wonderful playing by the orchestra was so brilliantly captured on this disc -- hats off to both Keith and David for their superb achievement, and again to David for his Producer of the Year award. As far as our future recording plans go, now that we are on the eve of our first season in our new home in Helzberg Hall at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, we couldn´t possibly be in better hands,” said Symphony Music Director Michael Stern.

Britten´s Orchestra is available online at www.allegro-music.com.
